Greater Minnesota is experiencing the most dramatic growth in senior population now, but you can expect to see far more silver in the Twin Cities suburbs in the coming years, too.
In Anoka County, for example, the senior population growth rate between now and 2030 is more than four times greater than the rate of other adult population growth. In 2015, 16% of adults in Anoka County were age 65 or older. By 2030, that percentage is expected to rise to 24% – nearly a quarter of the entire adult population.
Washington County will also see rapid growth in their senior population, with 18% of adults age 65+ in 2015 increasing to 25% by 2030. In Washington County, the senior population growth rate is more than two times greater than other adult population growth.
Carver County will see an 8% increase in their senior population over 15 years, from 14% in 2015 to 22% in 2030.
